He was born in Abetone, Tuscany, like Zeno Colò and Celina Seghi, and he finished 18th in the alpine skiing combined event at the 1936 Winter Olympics.[3]

During World War II he participated in the 1941 "World Cup" in Cortina d'Ampezzo that was not subsequently approved by the FIS because many nations opposing the war were absent. At this event, Chierroni won the gold medal in slalom.[3]

National titles


Chierroni won 14 medals (10 wins) at the Italian Championships: 6 in downhill, 5 in slalom and 3 in combined. [4][5]
